What It's About
A listener has knowledge and experience to monetize. How should they start?
Notes from Chris
Episode 1271What do I mean by the Knowledge Economy? In short, it refers to a system or society in which the production of goods and services is based primarily upon knowledge-intensive activities. That is opposed to a manufacturing economy or an agrarian society. In some ways it’s not new…. it’s been a couple of decades since people have been talking about globalization and e-commerce. But it has actually changed the world! These days there are countless mediums, platforms, networks, the social web, the ability to connect with people who have shared interests, no matter how esoteric or specialized they may be. However, it can also feel a little overwhelming, and today’s caller is looking for a clear path. The reality is that there isn’t a single path—there are many—but I’m hopeful that we can help her narrow down her options and perhaps help other listeners wondering the same thing.
"Hi this is Christine from Vancouver and I've been listening to side hustle school from the beginning. I'm wondering if you could share your thoughts on the best way forward in the Knowledge Economy? It feels like a brave new world, where individuals can sell information and training to other individuals, without the traditional gatekeepers of corporations and universities—but it also feels like there aren’t any rules or clear paths to follow. I think I know something I can teach a lot of people. How do I decide the best platform to do that, and do I just start making an outline … or is there more to it? Also, which do you think is better for this … a podcast or a YouTube channel? Looking forward to hearing from you and hope you visit us in Canada soon."Listen to today's episode to learn more...
